Military or civilian, it's all civil engineering in the end

I found it rather sad that your correspondent, 'Military versus civil engineering' (NCE 31 July), should object to an excellent article on a daunting overseas project in a difficult and dangerous location, on the grounds that it was military engineering not civil.
We are both, civil and military engineers, in the same profession, with many of the same problems.

The project described included many of the problems I have experienced while working on civil projects overseas, but fortunately I have never had to work in danger of my life.

I salute the brave men of our armed forces, and trust your correspondent will enjoy a peaceful existence by virtue of their work.
